3. CB Denzel Ward, Ohio State
The next great Buckeye defensive back up, he’s got all the tools to be a No. 1 corner with first round ability and upside.
He’s not all that huge at 5-10 and 191 pounds, but he’s not a bad tackler in the open field – that’s not what you’re getting him for, though. Even so, this …
His worth is as a cover-corner with warp speed and the athleticism to absolutely crush the Combine.
He’s able to adjust quickly and use his make-up speed with seemingly little effort – he broke up 15 passes on the year – and doesn’t need a whole lot of technique work. Yeah, he’ll get pushed around from time to time, but no one’s going to run past him.
